now. first with the eminem spot in detroit pb then halftime with america. this time with the jeep spot but also this ram truck spot. >> we have time for one more. tide came in with a very cleaver ad. a lot of people were talking about that around our office. let's take a look. >> oh! >> dude, you got montana on your jersey. >> it is. >> this was my husband's personal favorite. >> bill, what did you like about it or not like about it? >> oh, i love this commercial. i think it lef ranls the hype and super system surrounding big sports and so just a great way. i love the ending where the wife washes the shirt because she is a ravens fan. i also love what they did in tweeting, when the black out happened. it says we can't get your black out but we can get your stains out. i thought that was a very clever way. >> they certainly were quick at it. >> yeah. >> bill, thank you. >> thank you. take care. >> ty, over to you. >> my favorite was the ram truck one. my favorite, because of the voice of paul harvey. i totally agree with bill on that. anyhow, $2 billion deal in the tech sector. plus be
